I like LibreOffice 3.5.1. The ability to open a pdf in Draw, edit it, and export the edited pdf is very convenient, BUT if the pdf has fully justfied text, it is all changed to left justified (i.e "ragged right") This makes it unusable.

Good morning, Sasha,

I am now running LibreOffice
Build ID: 165a79a-7059095-e13bb37-fef39a4-9503d18

I had forgotten to retest but have now done so, and it looks 

The test document I have attached is a difficult one, having 
started many years ago in WordPerfect, edited any times, 
imported into LibreOffice, and edited several times. It's a mix 
of various odd fonts and graphics so rendering is not perfect in 
some areas - but that's a different matter. I would say the bug 
is fixed - on the basis of limited testing.

Kind regards,

Henry Strobel

I am now using Version (Build ID: 58f22d5)

The same bug is back, which severely limits the ability to use Draw to edit pdfs with fully justied text. (It removes the right side justification, making it "ragged right."
